Oh for god’s sake.

I seriously can’t believe that MB finally caved in. And to Yahoo!, to boot.

Apparently our offers to contribute to the financial cause was useless. We don’t really care about whether we get paid for this, we’d have joined the local paper if we did.

Next thing you know, we’ll have Yahoo! breathing down our necks and telling us what to write.

Ugh. Thanks a lot.

    Just read the front page. Hnm… I think it’s nice though, at least we have support. And I wouldn’t mind getting paid either. That would be nice– and that would push the others to post more than once a week!

    Geez, Kyameel. If you wanted to get paid you should’ve joined the Philippine Daily Inquirer or something.

    I know we’re friends and all but that’s really the way I see it.

    This has greed stamped all over it.

    It’s not greed. MB has finally seen the light. They have how many bloggers who post frequently — okay, not counting our city– and what do they get? The simple pleasure of getting read?

    I understand my own journal, but a group blog? Pfft. Please!

    I’m not exactly sure what yahoo wants to do with it’s stake here. But i doubt they’re gonna pay the bloggers. I mean, this could mean a sudden increase in applicants for this just for the sake of $$… Heh, but the owners of the site are sure gonna be happy.

    i think getting read is its own reward. heh, wouldn’t getting paid mean increased pressure to produce some high quality writing?

    say what? i haven’t touched a newspaper once during my vacation, and when we finally had cable in the house, we watched the final moments of the Pope and the first episode of Darna.
